Now, people educate for the purpose of getting a career. Preferably, a high-paying career. Education is a marketable product meant to yield worker drones in a culture of conflicting hive queens. People pay hand-over-fist to have some committee elected 'expert' plug in the puzzle pieces for a job that will round out a well-to-do wallet, and prefabricate an otherwise flexible mind.
That's not education. It's the machinations of a kleptocratic system filching the vibrancy, and potential from innocent minds.
